The majority of Amakhosi's rival fans have used the stadium punishment to poke fun at their attendance at games

Kaizer Chiefs' two-game punishment is due to their fans' shocking behaviour when they lost to Free State Stars in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on April 21.

At the time, hundreds of Amakhosi fans invaded the pitch in Durban where some supporters attacked security guards and broadcast cameras.

Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns fans took the opportunity to tease Amakhosi fans as soon as the Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee confirmed that Chiefs were guilty of the incident.  

According to a statement released by the PSL on Tuesday, Amakhosi were ordered to play three matches behind closed doors, one of which is suspended for a period of 24 months provided they are not found guilty of a similar offence.
